How to Get Testimonials When You First Start Teaching Manners to Children

How to Get Testimonials When You Are First Starting Out

Today I am sharing the what, when and how of getting testimonials when you are first starting your business teaching manners to children.

Let’s talk about why you need testimonials.  Testimonials allow for your community to speak on your behalf.  You need social proof of who you are. 

Having testimonials gives your potential client the opportunity to know, like and trust you. Parents, teachers and organizations need to see what it is like having you teach their children manners.  They need to know what it is like doing business with you.

Did You Know….

  • You don’t have to have “client” reviews.  When you are first starting out, you can include testimonials from those that know you. For example, your daughter’s teacher, or a former employer or a peer.
  • You don’t have to use a testimonial verbatim.  You can shorten it or use the most relevant sentences.
  • If you have a website, you do not need to have a dedicated testimonial page. You can use testimonials throughout the site or on your Facebook page or other social media channels.

What Types of Testimonials Do You Need?

Ideally, you need testimonials from:

Parents:  When you provide private instructions or when their children are in a class of yours, ask them about their experience.

Educators: As you provide school assemblies, classroom programs or after school programs, ask for testimonials.

Troops: Girl Scout programs are thrilled to have etiquette experts come and speak to their troop.  You can ask parents for testimonials or troop leaders.

Peers:  Look for those individuals that know you and are well-respected in the community. 

What Should Testimonials Say About an Etiquette Expert?

When requesting a testimonial, ask them to write about:

  • Their child’s experience
  • Your teaching style
  • How organized you are
  • How engaging you were
  • How much the children learned and are now using at home or in the classroom

How To Get Testimonials When You are an Etiquette Expert

I bet you already know what I am going to tell you:  ASK!

That’s it.  Ask.  You will never get them if you don’t ask.

3 Beliefs to Adopt for Etiquette Experts

3 Beliefs to Embrace for Etiquette Experts

When first starting out – going after my desire to teach and start a business, I was so scattered.  I really was flying by the seat of my pants!

Of course, I sought advice and read everything I could get my hands on but it wasn’t enough.

I wish I had someone to tell me what I am about to tell you. 

There are 3 beliefs I wish I had focused on and embraced when starting my business teaching manners to children.

These are not tactical steps, such as a business license, choosing a curriculum or attending networking events.  Although these are important.

This has to do with your mindset. And boy oh boy is it the most important step of all.

Here is the good news! It is easy and one that you can do all by yourself.  Yes, it is about self-interest – and only you can make the change.

 3 MOST IMPACTFUL Beliefs You Need to Embrace to Become a Successful Etiquette Expert

Belief # 1: VALUE | For those of you that have been following me for some time, you know that I am a big believer in what we bring to the world.

We bring a great deal of value.  And each one of us has our individual style.  If you have a desire to teach manners to children, then you have a calling.  You have a gift.  And it is VALUABLE and NEEDED.

Recognize the need. 

Belief # 2:  CONFIDENCE | You need confidence to start a business…any business.  

You can do this as many of us have.  

Confidence is not having fear around certain emotions.  Emotions that limit you are: rejection, humiliation, failure or embarrassment.

The more experience you have at the above, the richer and fuller your life will be.

Belief # 3: MAKE A CHANGE MAKE A DIFFERENCE | You need to believe what you have to offer will change the lives of children.  You need to know what you have to offer is exactly what the world needs right now and that you are the ONE to make it happen.

3 Common Etiquette Faux Pas and How You Can Help Others

3 Common Etiquette Faux Pas and How You Can Help Others

Flashback…too many years ago to reveal!

I was in the height of my career with Levi Strauss & Co.  A major client was in San Francisco from Dallas to review next season’s release of jeans in every color and finish imaginable.

Of course, after the presentations, as a team we would attend a lavish dinner at the latest chic and hip restaurant.  

We were starving, as the day was long looking at every style of denim possible. 

The table was preset.  The bread basket rolled around the table. We all were drooling and wouldn’t you know it…. someone used the wrong bread plate!  This was an embarrassing moment.  

To this day I am not sure who it was…but I will tell you this…I wondered if it was me.  I had just received a promotion.  I was duly aware that I was being “watched”.  All my “i’s” were dotted and “t’s” crossed. I was watching my every move.

It stayed on my mind throughout the week. 

Let’s help others avoid these embarrassing moments.

3 Most Common Etiquette Faux Pas

If you are like me, you are passionate about helping others.

When you are interested in teaching manners, you must keep in mind the value that you add to the lives of both children and adults.

 You have the exact skill that all of us need.  

When you use good manners life get easier.  It puts others at ease.

You become self-aware and certainly more confident.

Where is my bread plate?

Have you ever been to a networking event during lunch?  It never fails.  Someone whispers, “where is my bread plate”.  

I am going to tell you and you will never forget.  The bread plate is on the left.  How can you remember?  Think of a BMW.  Bread Meal Water

I promise you will never forget.

How to Hold a Fork

This one takes the cake!  If you are eating American Style, the fork is held in your most dominant hand, like a pencil. Not a shovel

If you are eating European Style, the fork is held tines down in your mouth.  

Introductions

You must stand for an introduction.  This is a sign of self-respect and respect for the other person.  

Fast forward a few years…because this situation never left my mind, I have taught thousands of children and adults in corporate America social skills.

Are you interested in learning about different cultures?  You are going to love today’s article about our new licensee teaching Manners To Go in Ghana.

Ohemaa was such a pleasure to get to know.  I looked forward to our video training sessions.  I learned so much about her culture and of course what they love to serve for dinner in Ghana….you know I love to talk about food!

When you start any business, naming your new venture is a big deal. Some struggle a bit while others come to me with a name already selected.  Well…Ohemaa, takes the cake!  In fact, she could teach a course on how to name your business.  During our second training session, she gave me a list of more than twelve names she was considering.  All of them were FANTASTIC.  Listen to the video to learn how she came up with so many ideas.
